Proxmox has a warm, welcoming community made up of thousands of people around the world. There are lots of ways for you to get involved. The invaluable contributions of Proxmox community members range for example from providing help and advice in the community forum, writing documentation, translations, testing new versions, or developing code.

How to get involved

If you want to start contributing to one of the Proxmox projects but you don’t know where to start, here is a list with some common tasks:

Financial support

One of the best ways on how to support the open-source projects from Proxmox is a commercial subscription. The Proxmox subscription provides special benefits to you while at the same time it financially supports and thus secures the ongoing development of the projects.
